Man in Batman shirt attacks Wendy's worker at Nicetown drive-thru

Philadelphia police are searching for a man they say is responsible for attacking a Wendy's drive-thru worker.

Just before 2 a.m. on Aug. 6, the man in question attempted to place an order at the Wendy's on Fox Street in Nicetown.

After one employee reportedly had a hard time hearing the man, another attempted to take the order. The suspect began cursing and then drove around, exited his vehicle and spit on the employee.

Police say that when employees locked the drive-thru window, the suspect became enraged and continued to yell, spit and bang on window.

At one point, according to police, the suspect took out a large socket wrench and threatened to break the drive-thru window.

The suspect fled the area in an unknown direction a short time later.

Police describe the suspect as a black man in his late 20s or early 30s. He has a medium complexion, beard and thin build. He was notably seen wearing a dark colored shirt with a Batman logo on the front. He was also seen driving an older model silver Buick.

Anyone with information about the alleged crime or suspect is asked to contact Northwest Detective Division at 215-686-3353 ext. 3354.
